Tinkerbell Revisited - The photos
shanlung
I have been back in Singapore a couple of days now. A few times, I caught myself saving empty ciggie boxes being so used to doing that for a month before. I was using those empty boxes to bribe Tinkerbell.

Singapore is a suffocatingly depressing place to be in. When I was working and living in Communist China, I found Communist China to be a beacon of human rights and democracy in comparison to this nightmare that I am back in. I am not kidding you at all.

Maybe you can understand better why I travelled about so much. The place I am in cannot be regarded as a home, and not just because they refused to let me take Tinkerbell back here. Take a look at this website. http://www.talkingcock.com/html/index.php

Shocking as it may be, the stuff they have there are not as satirical as they made it out to be. Do take a look at the Annuals of the Dragon King when you are there.

As I guessed on that Sunday when I last wrote to you from Taipei, I was not about to leave Taiwan on Monday as originally planned. The most intense typhoon for the last 5 years was battering Taiwan. Typhoon HaiTang grounded all flights in and out of Taipei Airport for that day.

China Airline managed to get me a seat for the day after much to my regret.

The only nice thing about my return here is that I am back with my wife Joy and my cat Ivan.

I also got to checking out the photos I took. There were a thousand.

I am also running short of space in Webshot. That bugged me. Webshot restricted me to 3000 photos. As my photos are in the range of 120-240k per photo unlike the Meg size photos most people have, I should have been allowed more photos.

I had to cull without mercy 100 from that thousand. If you have been following my blog, you can see where those photos came from. I also captioned those photos to help you folks.

You are all welcomed to

DO NOTE THAT THE URL IS CHANGED TO FLICKR.

I WILL BE MIGRATING OVER TO FLICKR BECAUSE OF BIG DISAPPOINTMENT WITH WEBSHOTS AND THE HELP THEY OFFERED SO PATRONISINGLY.

MY FLICKER ACCOUNT ALLOWED ME MUCH MORE STORAGE SPACE AS WELL AS THE ABILITY TO PLACE THE PHOTOS INTO THE BLOG.

SO INSTEAD OF 100 PHOTOS, I HAVE 245 PHOTOS IN THE FOLDER IN
http://www.flickr.com/photos/shanlung/sets/670229/

I WILL BE CANCELLING MY WEBSHOTS AND MOVING ALL MY FOLDERS OVER TO FLICKER

Please be careful, friend. Your voice which is loud and clear would be
sorely missed if it were silenced. I know some of my favorite Webshots members have many many more than 3000 photos up. I don't understand this limitation for yours.

Do you write often of your diving experiences? I've enjoyed your world travels to exotic places. You write REAL things, not travelogues.

My three greys are enjoying our new home. They have a huge sunroom overlooking the river, all four walls are glass. The interior glass wall permits them to see the living room, listen to music, and watch TV. I took them each up to the glass and let them experience it; so far no crashes into the glass have occurred. They all seem to like the new baby sitter, who cares for them when I travel. She stops by to bring treats and visit with me, so they know she is a friend. It makes a big difference in how they experience my absences. I would have a horrible time if I knew my boy Kimali would not be here when I came home. And Kaycee the female Congo African Grey, she is such a sweet gentle soul, how could I bear parting with her. I admire your fortitude. We do not really own these adorable feathered creatures, I suppose, we merely are entrusted with their care for a time, and then life takes them on a separate path.

My best to you and Joy, and to Tinkerbell as well.
Peace be with you always. BJ
